Course Description

Modern society and legal practice has become increasingly data-driven in recent years. The sheer amount of personal data collected by organizations now is simply staggering. With the tremendous increase in the collection, processing, analysis, storage, and transfer of data, the privacy, security, and even the safety of the people that the data concerns are at risk. 

It would be fair to say that society and the corresponding commercial landscape is transforming before our eyes. The technologies underlying these changes evolve rapidly and that makes it very difficult for existing laws and ethical frameworks to keep up. As a result, data ethics has emerged as a new area in response to new ethical challenges related to the use (and abuse) of data, the algorithms used to parse and analyze that data, and the data practices accepted by the public and private sectors.

Join attorney Scott Aurnou as he addresses the intersection of data governance and legal ethics in this exciting and important new program.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the fundamentals of data governance
  2. Appreciate the importance of an ethical approach to data management, particularly as it pertains to attorneys
  3. Discuss the wide array of ethical issues and potential risks that can arise in an increasingly data driven society
  4. Address the essential considerations involved in taking an ethical approach to data governance
